It’s been a really quiet week but I wanted to give you an update on Aunt Happy.
She recovered from her fall really well. She’s back to being able to walk with her walker and can get herself up out of the chair or bed. She spent the three weeks or 20 days that Medicare allows and then moved back to her apartment in the Springs. Her niece, Bonnie, came down from Missoula to see what arrangements needed to be made. Happy is going to need more help and someone to stay with her every night.
The biggest issue we face is that dementia is becoming a problem. That means that it is very difficult for Happy to know what she wants to do. I have expressed my opinion, but have no authority. So we will wait and see what happens. The Springs did say that if she falls again she cannot come back to them. She will have to move to a nursing home. We’re hoping that if this happens Good Samaritan will have a place for her because she really liked it there.
Rod is improving and his family is taking really good care of him. He’s had a couple of weeks of chemo and some radiation. Please keep all of them in your prayers.
Jim has been doing some fishing and flying. Well, sort of flying. He couldn’t do this so perfectly if he really tried. Definitely need a new prop.
The weather has been really quite nice but is going to warm up this week.
About the only other thing we’ve done is help load the POD for our neighbors. Gary and Carol sold their park model and are going back to Iowa to be close to their son as they deal with health issues. Ginny had almost everything packed so figuring out how to get it into the POD was the job for the guys.
Amazing how much stuff you can get into one of these PODs. They had their van transported back to Iowa for them and they will be flying out on Wednesday. Sad to see them go as they were fantastic neighbors.
Still quite a few folks in the park but by the end of the first week of May it’s going to be very empty around here.
